Most common in sports, a bandwagon fan is a fan of a team simply because they are the reigning champions/have the most championships/doing the best at the moment. The second these fans notice that they're team is starting to do poorly, they'll jump ship and hop on the bandwagon of a different team that is doing well. As a result, they will have little to no knowledge of their current team and the true fans of said team will hate them for it.
Bandwagon fans are typically fans of the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Duke basketball, and Alabama football.
Bandwagon fan: Bama won the championship! Roll Tide!
Alabama fan: Since when are you an Alabama fan?

Alabama fan: 2011 right?

Alabama fan: You probably don't even know what that means...
